School of Choice

As mentioned within our General Information page, Polaris is a 100% School of Choice program within Poudre School District.  Students who wish to enroll at Polaris must apply through the School of Choice on-line application.  The deadline for the School of Choice application for secondary schools is the last Friday of January each year.  After submitting the application the School of Choice Application Priority process as established by PSD is followed.  Additional School of Choice information can be found on the PSD website.
